You haven't tried nerve pain pills like Gabapentin, Pregabalin, Duloxetine etc for pain control, agree?

no

Okay, nerve-pain pills like Gabapentin, or Pregabalin, or Duloxetine, or Amitriptyline can also help with severe joint pain, so this is one option

Neuro Doctor :

One of these pain relieving patches or creams from the below list can also help considerably;


 


Lidocaine anesthetic pain relieving skin patches - to apply over the painful joint


 


Flector nonsteroidal pain relieving skin patches - to apply over the painful joint


 


Capsaicin pain relieving skin cream - to apply over the painful joint


 


Voltaren pain relieving skin cream - to apply over the painful joint

Neuro Doctor :

A course of oral steroid like Prednisolone too can help in relieving this severe pain

Neuro Doctor :

And none of the above should cause the side effects you are concerned
